Leaving Vancouver B.C. to catch a ferry back to Mayne Island on Boxing Day there was a slice of early morning sun coming through the heavy rain clouds. I was early. I took a left at Tsawwassen and headed for Boundary Bay Regional Park. This park is a seaside wetland sanctuary for birds and bush bunnies like me passing through on their trek home.
To day the wind and sea were both high as waves rolled up and sometimes over the sandy beach.
The scene was dramatic. The contrasting colours between sea and sky were unusual. The light changed fast as it rose above the sea towards the cloud bank. If I had painted it, the viewer would have had a hard time believing its authenticity.
Even with a photograph… you might think “she did it with Photoshop! You can do anything with Photoshop.”
But I didn’t. I just happen to be at the right place at the right time with camera in hand.
